1/7: 248.0 Not sure how that happened...pizza for dinner Saturday night.
1/8: 246.5 <--- new low
1/9: 246.9...I didn't take any food to work yesterday, so I had a very late (10:00) dinner
1/10: 246.3
1/11: 247.1 Meh...guess I need to stop eating low carb ice cream when I get home from work...me & sugar alcohols don't mix.
1/12: DNW
1/13: 243.4
1/14: 244.? I don't remember the last part

I'm not going to let this get me down, I'm sure Sunday's weigh in was a fluke plus I weighed about 3 hours later (or I slept 3 hours later) than I usually weigh in, so I'm sure that affected it as well.

Welcome Joann...glad you're here. Great job getting back on plan and working on the sugar numbers. I'm glad you are posting them. I am not diabetic, but was trying out the Nutritional Ketosis plan and purchased a monitor. I was probably pre-diabetic having morning readings from 100-110. I think I'm under 100 now. I will check mine and post them periodically too.

Terri...you will be showing up here soon. I just wanted to tell you thank you! I have been intermittent fasting (IF) since last Wednesday and it is working great. I'm tracking my calories and carbs daily and shooting for certain numbers. I love it. You are right. It is doable because of that one satisfying meal. I have it right in the middle of the day and its perfect. I'm including a dessert too. I love it. Thank you for being here. I don't think I would try it again because the the particular diets (ESE, Leangains, Warrior) weren't really appealing to me, but the way you explain it and do it IS. I feel like I can do this long term and it is so freeing to not have to plan out unsatifying meals throughout the day. I'll be honest here...that way SUCKS...haha. I love planning out the one fulfilling, satisfying meal and then not have to think about it until tomorrow. Love it! Thanks again. ((HUG))

Oh Zay! I'm so glad that this is working for you! I know it's not possible for everyone to do I.F., but for the people it works for, YAY! I'll admit, the first time I tried it, (I NEVER used to skip breakfast) I wasn't very confident that I would be able to do it. Well, lo and behold. . Not only did I make it to the noon hour, but I was LESS hungry than if I would have eaten breakfast!!

I'm so proud of you, and I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!

Kali, you are doing awesome!

Welcome to all the newbies!

Joe_Anne2 ~ you're so close to getting to a new decade of numbers!

Zay~ I'm so glad that you're liking IF'ing.. it's a hard concept to wrap your head around but once you do and you can work it, it does amazing things!

Kali~ don't worry about that number, it'll bounce down again soon!

nomorepepsi~ Wowzers, really 10lbs? That's amazing!

Not much new going on with me.

Pairis, Passion, Zay, Z and Desert Gurl- Great losses!

Welcome JoeAnne! Good luck with LC and controlling your blood sugars. Many people here have had great success with controlling their diabetes with their diet.

@Zay- I naturally do a modified version of IF and it suits me well. On Sundays we often go out for a brunch so I tend to eat earlier than the rest of the week. Otherwise I do not eat until late afternoon early evening.

01/01/13---224.2 Enjoyed a bit too much on New Years Eve
01/02/13---224.2 Back on plan with carbs and calories
01/03/13---225.0 WTH? I am guessing residual water weight from New Years
01/04/13---223.8 Back in the groove.
01/05/13---223.0
01/06/13---222.4
01/07/13---221.4
01/08/13---220.0
01/09/13---220.0 no change- but it was not a gain!
01/10/13---218.2
01/11/13---216.8
01/12/13---216.8
01/13/13---216.8 Really?
01/14/13---216.2

Hello Ladies (and Gents)

Just checking in after being MIA for a week or so. I don't know whats happened to me. I've hit a point that I havent hit before since starting LC last March. Its like Im in a depression. For the last week and a half Ive ate everything in sight....bread, sweets, you name it. I know what Im doing to my body and I tell myself I shouldnt be having it....all the while standing there cramming my face with bread.

I feel depressed honestly. I went for my first surgical consult on the 7th and the reality hit me that my body needs a LOT of work to even look normal at this point. More than I will ever be able to afford. I knew the obvious things I'd need, but the surgeon pointed out other areas I hadnt even though of or noticed. Seeing myself in front of her mirror hit me in a real hard way. I wasn't prepared for it.

We tell ourselves as fat people that if we just lose weight everything will be ok. Its not. My body looks worse now than before I started losing weight. I feel like a saggy blob of nothing. I thought losing weight would make me fit in or be normal and its actually making me feel worse.

I have family pulling at me from every direction. A father who cant walk (due to strokes), a mother who cant drive, 2 sons who are lazy as they can be, a job that requires me 50+ hours per week. I feel like I have to do -everything- for so many people and there is no time for me. I dont even have time to prepare my own meals anymore which was a huge factor in my losing weight.

I went over a week and didnt set foot on the scales. I knew it was bad. Today, I weighed. I thought the shock would set me back into motion. I weighed 262.5. I was down to 249 lbs (twice) less than a month ago. And what did I do after I weighed? I went and ate. I kick myself because if I had stayed on strict plan when I first hit 249 I could have seen the 230's by now. But I didnt. And now here I am above 260 again. I feel like my life is spinning out of control and I just want it all to stop.

Im so embarrassed and humiliated to even post this. But I posted it because it might benefit someone else who is silently suffering the same way I am, to know that they are not alone.

Im going to try so hard tomorrow to get back on track. Ive been trying for days now and I cave by the end of the day. Just so depressed. I'll try to check in more often but I wanted you all to know Im still around and hope to be posting lower numbers again soon.

Blondie,

Sorry to hear about your struggles... I succumbed to the same carby, sugary temptations myself last night... being single and childless myself, I don't know what it's like to take care of family members, and have no time for yourself... but today is another day, and we start anew... Behlor

Blondie,
So sorry you are having a difficult time with things. Please know we are here to listen. I wish I had some words of wisdom to help. I would like to offer a suggestion...I'm not sure if this is something you would like, so this may not help....google Norman Vincent Peale Thought Conditioners PDF and there are 40 wonderful nuggets of scripture to offer comfort, strength and faith. I use these and treasure them. Have a good day.

Blondie so sorry you are going through a tough time. I hope things start looking up soon.

Blondie, I thought about you this morning when I was taking a shower. I felt that you might be struggling and I feared that we would never see you again! I'm so glad to see that you had the strength to come back here! You don't have to explain anything. . . we all understand! I LOVE food! Love the way it tastes, love the way it feels in my mouth, love the way it feels in my belly. It's just the guilt, which is the way it makes us feel in the head that sucks. Oh, and the scale, of course. You are on the way to recovery! Like I've said before, Acknowledgment is the first step! Don't let it crush you!

Kali (a.k.a. "skinny") good job! Pepsi, Zay, Ya'll are rockin it as well! Joanne, hang in there!

Hi, Kali,

Nice compliments from your family... but don't get too skinny... you'll end up like Kate Moss and end up dating dangerous but sexy rock stars

JoeAnne, good news on your weight and bs... in the end, losing weight is more than about fitting into size 4 Gap jeans, it's about living to see your kids grow up, and playing with your grandkids -- whether you wear size 4 or 12.

I gotta head back to my freelance work... Behlor

Still nothing much new with me.

Welcome Cassidy.

@Blondie-Self sabotage is actually pretty common while losing weight. With your added stress of family obligations and work hours it is hard to keep it together. BUT,,,you have to take care of yourself first before you can help others. You must make your meals first and do what you have to do to stay on plan and be healthy. When things spin out of control the one thing you can control is what you put in your mouth. It sounds odd but knowing you are still able to be on plan when the rest of the things around you are a bit crazy can be a comforting feeling. Make your meals for the week today before you help anyone else. Also if you start back to LC right away and in a week most of the weight you gained will come off fairly quickly as water weight.

@Kali- You know your butt must be getting smaller if a 15 year old tells you it is. Most kids would not notice or would not tell you. Give that girl a hug!


01/01/13---224.2 Enjoyed a bit too much on New Years Eve
01/02/13---224.2 Back on plan with carbs and calories
01/03/13---225.0 WTH? I am guessing residual water weight from New Years
01/04/13---223.8 Back in the groove.
01/05/13---223.0
01/06/13---222.4
01/07/13---221.4
01/08/13---220.0
01/09/13---220.0 no change- but it was not a gain!
01/10/13---218.2
01/11/13---216.8
01/12/13---216.8
01/13/13---216.8 Really?
01/14/13---216.2
01/14/13---215.4

Cassidy - Welcome!

Blondie - I am so sorry you're going through all this. Wise words from our other posters. I just want to add that I've been in such a similar situation: everything crashing in and overwhelming what little mental and physical reserves you possess, feeling that nothing will ever change (so why try), that ongoing funk/feeling you're barely keeping your head above water, and then ultimately succumbing to the urge to go off-plan. What better way to reinforce the feeling that you're not measuring up everywhere else in your life, right? Ugh. BTDT. Frankie is absolutely right -- to get out of the spiral you will really need to put yourself first.

This is just my own opinion, so take with a grain of salt: I've often felt that depression (I've battled this my whole life) is the body's way of telling us that we're maxed out, that something has to give or we will indeed fall apart. Until things change, the body is trying to protect itself by partially shutting down in response to the stress. It's telling us we're neglecting our own needs, and our well has begun to run dry. When I was in that mire and muck, the only way I got out was to lower my work hours (I quit my 2nd job) and tell quite a few people "no". I couldn't be everything to everybody, at least not at that moment.

Take care of you.
